The other day I made a ‘crystal drawing’ of a tea cup outside on my deck. … it just felt like a nice thing to do ..
In the metaphysical world, Clear Quartz crystals are the supreme gift of Mother Earth. Even the smallest is imbued with the properties of a master healer teacher. Ancients believed these stones to be alive, taking a breath once every hundred years or so, and many cultures thought them to be incarnations of the Divine.

today.. I decided to sit next to that.. and make another ‘drawing with my crystals’. And sit for a little while with the sun warming my back (it’s winter time here) and loving the thought of ‘letting more light in’.
this time I made a symbol of ‘Blessing’… a circle with three drops at the bottom..
Inside the circle I placed my smash book/art journal.. which also serves as my traveling altar.
I use it to make dedications for the workshops I am teaching, to hold a space of preparation, readiness and caring for myself to be a help to those who are coming. An energy exchange takes place.. each one who comes is meant to be there.. we never know what connections we are making.. and to be in circle, creating with other women.. is one of the delights of my life.
I so love how Aura’s shadow appears so much larger than herself… when we take her to the beach that faces East in the morning.. this happens and a long legged girl races along beside her looking so big and tall… she has a wild wonderful spirit that lets loose off leash on the beach.. it’s a pleasure to behold.
I’ve got a workshop coming up later in July a ‘Gypsy Retreaty Workshop’ and so it’s on my heart and mind.. and this was a way of giving it some kind of blessing.. letting the universe know I’d like support and to hold light for it’s creation and our time together when we gather to paint. I like to simplify things.. I don’t belong to any religion … I just want more love in my life.. to be loving, to be loved.
beautiful quote from Hafiz :
Stay close to anything that makes you glad you are alive
